When I first stepped through the doors of Bellus Academy, I was a young military wife with one little girl and another little girl on the way. I used my military spouse grant to help fund my education and began my course, knowing I would give birth half way through the program.
It was hard being out of the program while my baby was born and in the NICU due to health complications, but Bellus Academy gave me time and encouragement to focus first on my daughters health and come back as soon as I was ready and able.
I came back and took advantage of the weekend make up hour opportunity our school had offered, and I graduated just a month behind schedule. It was hard work, but I had all the support I could ask for from the staff and educators there.
Bellus Academy hosted a job fair, and from there I was hired on to work at Great Clips in Manhattan, KS. Bellus Academy helped me in so many ways and I will always be thankful for all the support the staff instilled in every student to help them achieve their goals.
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
